Stories for Snuggling: Rhyming Book

Cuckoo Can’t Find You by Lorianne Siomades

Another favorite in our house! This is a fun rhyming AND seek-and-find book. Children are asked to help Cuckoo and his friends find their missing items. “Bear can’t find his pear. Crow can’t find her bow. Fox can’t find her socks…” And in the end, Cuckoo can’t find you (there’s a spot to place a picture of your child, or there are some versions that include a mirror). The pictures are bright and colorful. The missing items are camoflouged inside each picture. I was worried that after reading it through a couple of times, my kids would get bored with finding the items, but I was wrong. Now, it’s more fun because they know where the items are and enjoy seeing how FAST they can find them!

This would be another fun book to make on your own! Help your child think of some various animals (or use the ones in the book for inspiration). Then, have your child think of a word that rhymes with each animal. Write the words on different sheets of paper and let your child illustrate each page, hiding the items they thought of. Bind and add to your personal library! Wahlah! Your own version! Plus, it reinforces/practices rhyming words. What more could you ask for?! Brilliant!
